As you may know, the Association for Computing Machinery - (ACM) is the leading technical society for pure Computer Science. This semester, - as always, the ACM student chapter at New Mexico Tech looks - forward to hosting alumni speakers, research presentations by students, - programming and cybersecurity competitions, and skills seminars. - - \textbf{Club Description} - - The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is the premier technical society - for computer science and information technology majors. The NMT student chapter - provides many personal and career enrichment opportunities to the NMT student - body, including programming competitions, game jams, alumni speakers, and - the NMT ACM technical presentation series. NMT ACM is a great way to get - involved with your fellow CS/IT students and further develop your professional - network and skills. - - \textbf{Inventory} - - The NMT ACM is not in possession of any SGA property. - - \textbf{Budget} - - To support our programming, we are requesting a total of \$300.00. - - First, we are requesting \$240 to cover the purchase of food for some of our - events. We host presentations weekly by students, alumni, and industry - professionals, usually in the evenings during dinner hours. At 16 meetings per - semester this is a cost of only \$15 a meeting. We receive some support from the - CSE department for larger events, and approach the SGA for support with covering - the remainder of this expense. - - Second, we are requesting \$50 to cover miscellaneous expenses involved in - presentations and competitions. We often need to purchase supplies and small - prizes for our programs, and from time to time our programs require technical - services from other university departments and third parties. These - presentations and competitions help CS and IT students to develop their - technical and soft skills. - - Third, we are requesting \\$10.00 in operating costs to cover expenses - associated with our TCC and CSE department accounts and our virtual machine - hosted by the CSE department. - - \textbf{Volunteer Hours} - - To meet the SGA's requirements for volunteer hours this semester, the NMT ACM is - planning on hosting a Game Jam open to the whole student body. The Game Jam is a - 48 hour competition to create a functioning video game that demonstrates the - creative and technical skills of its participants. In semesters past this event - has attracted a large number of students from across campus, and we have - ambitious plans to further grow the event. - - \closing{Yours in computing,} - - \end{letter} -
